Here’s a list of 5 free photo gallery maker software for Windows 10 which can be used to create photo galleries on Windows 10 powered devices. Applications that I covered down below will allow you to create various different types of image galleries, ranging from web based galleries, flash based galleries, and even 3D galleries where images are displayed in a virtual gallery. There’s something for everyone. Let’s have a look at what exactly it is that’s available.
Visual LightBox is a free photo gallery maker software for Windows 10 which can be used to create web based photo galleries. It’s available for free for non-commercial use. Version for Mac OS is also available. Setup is pretty straightforward. In the first step you need to add all the images that you’d like to see in the gallery. A long list of formats is supported: JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, TIFF, ICO, JIFF, WMF, etc.
Once that images are loaded, you can arrange their ordering. Hit the “Publish” button from the toolbar up top to initiate the gallery tweaker. Available gallery features include slide show (with customizable speed, and auto play), zoom on mouse over, customizable zoom speed, and more. Several dozen different gallery templates are available. Finished galleries can be exported to an HTML file. They are jQuery powered galleries.
Get Visual LightBox.
Free Slideshow Maker
Free Slideshow Maker is a Flash based photo gallery maker software for Windows 10. Even though it’s flash based, finished galleries can also be exported bundled with HTML code (web embed), as standard video, HTML5 video, screen saver, and even a standalone executable (EXE).
Setting up galleries can be done quickly by using one of the 31 available templates. Alternatively you can set it up from scratch. Note that there’s a lot of things that are available for tweaking. First you add photos, and also video and audio (for background music). After that the second step is to setup the template. Decorations allow you to additionally tweak the template with clip art, text, and effects. Last step is publishing, where export folder and the type of gallery is set. Small drawback of Free Slideshow Maker is that it watermarks the created galleries.

Gallerymanager is another flash based photo gallery maker software which runs just fine on Windows 10. Setting up a gallery is done in steps, just like in Visual Lightbox. Each step of the setup is hidden away behind a different tab in the top left corner of the application.
Gallery settings are tweaked inside the “Settings” tab. There you can select between 2 available templates and tweak things like gallery background image, music, thumbnail size, load effect, text fonts, font colors, etc. Once that everything is setup, just click the “Preview” button from the top left corner menu. This will save the project and open it up in the default web browser so that you can preview it. Gallery is saved as an SWF flash file, accompanied with HTML code for easier embedding into websites. Free version also adds watermark to the bottom right corner.
AAA Web Album – free web based photo gallery maker software for Windows 10
AAA Web Album is a very simplistic photo gallery maker software where you can create web galleries using customizable templates. Interface of AAA Web Album is divided up into two columns. Left column lets you load up and manage images that you want in the gallery. Entire folders can be loaded at once.
Once that you’ve done that, the right half of the interface will let you select a template and then tweak it. Templates differ from each other in frames, thumbnail design, colors, etc. They can be additionally tweaked using the bottom right corner options. Gallery is created using HTML.

3D Image Gallery
This last photo gallery maker software is really something. Like its name suggests, 3D Image Gallery lets you create 3D virtual galleries out of your images. Up to 265 images can be added per gallery, because that’s how much room there is on the virtual gallery walls.
Image above shows how the 3D gallery looks like. You can see that it’s an actual virtual gallery, through which you can walk, just like a video game. Use the WASD keys and mouse as controls. Background music is included and you can select the resolution or if the gallery runs windowed/fullscreen upon launching the created gallery. Exported gallery is saved as a standalone EXE. Setting up the gallery is done through a 5 step wizard. Note that both 3D Image Gallery and created galleries are portable, there’s no need for installing anything.
